My Students

My students are experiencing all day school for the first time. They come from various socioeconomic backgrounds, with a wide range of life experiences and abilities.

My kindergarteners like to build, create, share, and get lost in their 'work'.

From reading to mathematics, from science to physical education, they put 110% into everything. We make the most out of every minute together.

Each student is unique and has a special talent to share with the rest of us. My little sponges will soak up your hearts, too!

My Project

Letter sounds and names are the basis for beginning reading and writing. The sound tubs will allow us to manipulate the sound we hear, thus making it both visual and phonetic.

Playing games that help us learn, are the best types of hands on activities for kindergarten.

Can you hear the first sound in cat? Can you hear the ending sound in fish? We can! Please let us hold the cat or fish in our hand when we say it. Let us figure out what tub it goes back in.

Games teach so much more than the phonics lesson. They teach taking turns, winning/losing, and they teach patience.
